What sports were invented in Norway?
Norheim invented the Telemark and Christiania Turn, which is also known as the Christie. At the same time, he invented slalom and ski jumping. Slalom is derived from a Norwegian word, slålam, that literally means, “slope,” and “track in the snow.”
Why was there a 92 and 94 Winter Olympics?
The Winter and Summer Olympic Games were held in the same years until 1992, after a 1986 decision by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to place the Summer and Winter Games on separate four-year cycles in alternating even-numbered years. Because of the change, the next Winter Olympics after 1992 were in 1994.
